Introduction

One key design consideration for Crystal Enterprise was for the delivery of information to be deployed as part of any Web-based delivery platform—intranet, extranet, or Internet. Increasingly, organizations are looking to standardize the access to corporate information within a Web-based infrastructure. Companies are now able to support a close relationship with their external constituents—be they customers or suppliers—through the delivery of information over the Web. Furthermore, considerable economies of scale can be realized by using the same architecture to deliver information internally.

Often, the means by which information can be rendered is through the display of a Crystal Report (or multiple Crystal Reports) as an integral part of a Web page executing on a client browser. Such integration with a company's Web-based information delivery system requires that the vehicle for providing that information (for example, a Crystal Report managed by Crystal Enterprise and integrated completely into a Web page) can also conform to the company's security requirements. In a nutshell, no matter what firewall standards a company chooses to adopt, Crystal Enterprise not only must be able to be configured within these standards, it also must do so without compromising the integrity (or performance) of information management and delivery.
